Carrownisky Strand is a stunning and scenic 4km long sandy beach in south County Mayo, Ireland. Its vast expanse of sand and great waves has made it both a famous horse racing beach each summer and a well known surfing beach.  Beach racing with horses has been revived here since 2010 with the previous race to this back in 1982. Carrowniskey is a very popular surfing beach as it provide one of the only consistent breaks in the area. Carrowniskey is located approximately 5km outside Louisburgh and is well sign posted.Carrowniskey Beach Mayo
